Proof Points

Research conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of ILM

ILM commissioned a piece of research with Harris Interactive in order to measure the impact of ILM qualifications on centres, employers and learners from the past 3 years.

All participants who took part have either completed an ILM  qualification or currently deliver ILM qualifications. Participants were asked to complete a 10 minute questionnaire about the impact ILM  qualifications had on them as a learner, or on their organisation as a centre or an employer.

The main areas measured were:

  • Impact of qualifications on employers and learners in terms of improved skills
  • Learners improved ability to carry out their job role
  • Likelihood to recommend ILM
  • Impact of the ILM brand on winning new business
  • Return on investment on ILM qualifications
  • Perception of ILM qualifications on recruitment

The research took place from 1st September to 3rd October 2016 and received 670 responses.
